Upon entering this deluxe residence you are instantly swept by a relaxing and calm vibe that soothes the nerves through extraordinary aesthetic values and absolute balance. The establishment has been entitled the Butterfly Beach House and it resides in one of the most luxuriant locations in California: Santa Barbara County-Montecito. This community has been consistently ranked by Forbes Magazine one of the wealthiest communities in the United States and from the first glance you can see that the architect Maienza-Wilson made no compromises in the design process of this masterpiece.
However the Butterfly Beach deluxe residence is more than meets the eye: the establishment is one of the first private residences to obtain the LEED Platinum Certification Level. This means that the home meets some very strict sustainability residences through high end features like photovoltaic solar panels. These panels have been carefully hidden from view to not interfere with the aesthetic values yet they provide all the electricity surged by residence. It`s worth mentioning that the home also uses flat rooftops that accomodate drought resistant grases meant to enhance passive cooling as well as radiant floor heating along with Icynene Spray Foam which is used to insulate the house. The dream home also shelters an underground 5000 gallon cistern that stores rainwater and it`s used on the daily basis to irrigate the low-water demanding garden that enhances the home magnificently through greenery.
The interior design shelters the highest level of comfort mainly wrapped in high materials and textures of dark hues and neutral colors. In this color scheme the exterior becomes the main focal point inviting the inhabitants to spend as much time outside as possible through a huge deck area around the swimming pool and jacuzzi, several entertainment areas including a sunken sitting area and a grass covered pavilion at the end of the pool.
